Adapted from a keyboard setting in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book (produced early 17th century), this is a (quite brief) working of a traditional tune, which appears in some versions of the words to the Maypole tune 'Come Lasses and Lads' in verse 3.

It is suggested that this be programmed with other items from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book - Pakington's Pownde, Pavana Chromatica and The King's Hunt for example make a nice group.

The suggested tempi are mine, as are the dynamics.

N.B. The ornaments may look like subdivisions of notes, but the meanings are rather different! I have retained the ornamental signs from the original, as the meanings are not conveyed very accurately by other available ornament signs. A single stroke through a stem implies a run up of two notes to the note in question; a double stroke implies a mordent that may extend into a trill or something more decorative, dependent on context and the player's individual style. Omitting any ornament is also perfectly acceptable.
